My System Specs

Default nVidia Maxwell is in da house!

I got a GTX 750 Ti yesterday. It is a Zotac, pretty sure an OEM model, but who cares? I can't believe how small this card is : the plastic shroud of the fan is just a tad longer than the 16x port itself! And so light. Put it to fold right away, with adv flag : so far 53k PPD at default clocks on WU 9201. I also played a bit last night, the graphics power seems at least equal to my last GTX 460, the 1380KR model clocked at 850MHz, all the eye candy was there and no sweat. Default clock as reported by Precision X is 1176MHz. It stays at around 53 deg Celsius while folding, and I can report that doing other tasks, like watching a movie or browsing the net are not affected, the movie is fluid with no lags.

Nice little card. I'm using one in my HTPC and couldn't be happier. I actually played Alien: Isolation with it on my projector and the game literally scared the bejezzus out of me more than once.

If I remember right a 750ti should be around the performance of a 560ti. Should be a bit faster then your 460 was, but obviously much better for power and heat. That is pretty low temps for folding. Let us know how it OCs.

Chilly morning in Montreal, i think there are like 4 Celsius degrees outside, I opened the balcony door, GPU is clocked to 1300 MHz, still folding, and temp is 40 degrees Celsius. Folding production jumped to 56k PPD.

PPD production to 63k PPD on WU 9201, clocks at 1300 MHz.

750ti = power of 580

GPU Z says it is always using around 62% of the TDP, and that is folding at 1300MHz, so that would be roughly 36-40W! That is amazing.
